Bethlehem First United Methodist Church — located at 709 Christmas Ave. in the heart of downtown Bethlehem — is busy putting together last-minute preparations for its annual live nativity pageant later this week.
Under starry skies Thursday, Dec. 22, and Friday, Dec. 23, the church will sponsor a re-enactment of the story of Jesus Christ’s birth before a multitude of church members, residents and visitors. The scene will be played out during two showings both nights — at 7 and 8 p.m. — lasting approximately 30 minutes each.
Admission is free, and attendees should plan to bundle up and possibly bring an umbrella, as the forecast calls for low temperatures of anywhere from 41 to 54 degrees with a slight chance of showers. Regardless of the weather, all are welcome to attend this time-honored Christmas tradition in the small Georgia town that shares its name with the birthplace of Jesus Christ.
